Toyota - Welcab

Original name: トヨタウェルキャブ コンセプト


Welcab concept

The driver seat and front passenger seat are both made wheelchair-accessible without assistance from a care-giver in this “new-concept, self-operated vehicle for the disabled” designed to allow two disabled people full access to free and convenient mobility through independent driving.

- Electrically operated sliding doors with wide openings are provided on both sides. The driver seat is accessible in a dedicated wheelchair via an electric lift, while the passenger seat is an electrically operated detachable lift-up seat that can be used as a wheelchair and also permits problem-free access and alighting with the help of an electrically operated lift. All these operations can be performed by wireless remote control.

- The electronic Friendmatic system reduces the strain of driving operations associated with the brake, accelerator and power steering, while the grouping and optimal layout of switches and controls facilitates driving.
